[aprssig] Weather Display and Xastir and Linux

I've been using the "meteo" package on my 600 MHz Linux box (a tiny, 
completely silent micro-ATX beast).  You would AFAIK not be able to 
have xastir and meteo talking to each other, but you would have all 
functions on one box.


The setup is this:
meteo runs on Linux box, stores data to mySQL database.
Apache also runs on the Linux box, serves only weather pages
a cron job on the Linux box generates a display page every 5 minutes, 
uploads to CWOP and Weather Underground periodically.
another cron job on my company's main server fetches the display page 
every 20 minutes

So if I want to see the weather in the house, I hit the baby Linux box 
directly at its 192.168.xxx.yyy address.  Other users hit the web page 
at http://www.mobilegeographics.com/loyalheights or the FINDU page at
